Children Of Bodom - Oslo And Malmö Shows Cancelled, Pull Out Of Ruisrock As Well


UPDATE: After cancelling their shows in Oslo and Malmö, Children Of Bodom were now forced to cancel their appearance at the Ruisrock Festival in Finland as well. Amorphis will replace them.

The band released the following statement: "This is not an easy letter for us to write. Alexi is suffering from a serious infection. He is still in hospital in Oslo under supervision of the doctors and we don't know yet when they will release him."

"We have no choice other than canceling Ruisrock in Turku on Saturday as well. This is a very bitter pill for us to swallow. We had decided to do only two festivals in our homeland this summer to make it real special, and now this. We hope that we will be able to make up for this very soon. To all our fans who had been looking forward to rock with us at Ruisrock this weekend, take our apologies and enjoy the festival. In our spirits, we will be there, too."



Original news posted on 04.07.2012: Finns Children Of Bodom were forced to cancel their show in Oslo yesterday as well as their performance in Malmö scheduled for today due to frontman Alexi Laiho being hospitalized.

The band released the following statement explaining why: "It is with great regret that we are forced to cancel tonight's show in Oslo as well as tomorrow night's show in Malmö."

"Alexi was rushed to the Oslo hospital earlier this evening with extreme stomach pain. The doctors in the emergency unit checked him and while we are still waiting for a diagnosis, they made clear that he will not be able to perform within the next 48 hours. We apologize to all our fans who have bought tickets to these shows - we will try to reschedule both Oslo and Malmö at the earliest possibility. Keep your fingers crossed with us that Alexi will get well again soon!"

Nazi?


Quite right bro. His mother's brother wife is Nazi.

On a much serious note, CoB is downgrading their stuff and RRR is just an perfect e.g. to slate out here. Now, Alexi is suffering from "CoB-is-going-fucking-shitty-year-by-year" traumatic infection and to cure this crap, it will take a time. Much time.
